Uganda: Discovering the White Nile 2021
The only horse riding tour in Uganda… together with our local partners we have organized this adventure for you where the longest river in the world, the White Nile, is born. We brought beautiful thoroughbred horses from Kenya, perfectly trained and amazingly adapted to the new accommodation. You will go to the discovery of the wonderful jungle inhabited by an abundant native fauna… and after a day in the saddle your lodge awaits you with its comforts and good food.
